You Can Change The World Doing What You Love
As a teenager who always had a drive to do more, I was often told to leave the big things in life to the adults. But when you're highly motivated to show people what you're capable of at a young age, everything becomes possible.
In the fall of 2021, I started doing research on non-profit organizations in the United States. I have personal connections to family members who have served in the military, so supporting veterans is something near and dear to my heart. While big, well known organizations are important to donate to, I wanted to work with a group that I would have more of an impact on and be able to connect on a deeper level. That is when I found Hope For The Warriors.
Hope For The Warriors (HOPE) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has earned a Four-Star Rating from Charity Navigator. HOPE provides comprehensive support programs for service members, veterans, and military families that are focused on transition, health, wellness, peer engagement, and connections to community resources. When I first got in contact with the team at HOPE, I was treated incredibly well and immediately connected to the staff through our shared values of supporting our nation's heroes. The team was supportive of this project in every aspect and is doing everything in their power to make this journey a success.
This trip is to prove that no matter your age, you can change the world doing what you love. On this trip, I am flying to honor the men and women who have honorably served this great nation.
